About Celtic Stonework
Celtic Stonework – was established and is run by Taffy (Paul Williams)
Taffy is from the South Wales valleys where at the age of 15 years old entered into an agreement to serve a bona-fide apprenticeship on the 4th day of October 1971 to be taught the craft of stone masonry by old stonemasons of that time in a town named Merthyr Tydfil.
During the period from October 1971 to October 1974 Taffy served is an apprenticeship, he was taught the craft of how to cut the Blue Pennant stone with only hammer and chisel. After two years in the quarries cutting stone in the banker sheds he then moved on to the installing of the stone.
At this point, Taffy also learned how to fix and cut natural Welsh roof slate for the roofing of the projects he worked on such as historical Heritage buildings from old churches, castles and Industrial protected buildings.
On arrival to New Zealand on 21st September 2000, it became apparent to Taffy that the workmanship with regards to stonework was, in general, substandard and not being done by qualified stone masons.
At this point, it was decided to establish Celtic Stonework and soon gained the reputation for quality workmanship from a bonafide trade certified Stone Mason.
With now over “43” years experience Taffy has become a “Master stonemason”. Celtic Stonework is the only company who openly displays proof of Trade certification and a proven record of an apprenticeship.
Celtic Stonework will undertake large and small projects, consult with architects, designers, and landscape/interior designers. With his knowledge regarding stone work Taffy will find a way to provide what the client desires.
Taffy is passionate about working with Natural Stone because it is a Sustainable building material which allows him to be creative plus add value to a property, it will also mature with time because it does not have a colour loss, not like artificial man-made fake schist.
